That's not true, I do know why. Intimately. Picking up a new language, with all new sounds and a whole new alphabet, is a daunting task. I am struggling in a way I have never struggled in school before; learning has always been easy for me - this is damn hard. I'm not suprised many haven't even thought about trying.

I've tried many times, and failed. Hard stuff, at least for me. I've had a few friends though who could pick up any language like a sponge. But for me, it's the hardest thing I've tried to do. Much more difficult than quantum mechanics and math.
